The Board Game Buffet podcast strives to bring content that is different and allows the contributors to bring their own twist to the conversation. Episodes drop on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month with "special" episodes airing in between on the 3rd Monday.
Dan and Dean started the podcast in May of 2017 with Episode 1: Terraforming Mars. Through episode #20, Dean and Dan discussed mid-heavy Euro games and historical wargames. Episode 21 saw Graeme join Dean as a guest host for the episode and they discussed Filler Games!
First Format Change: Episode 23-50 saw Graeme join Dean and Zach join Dan on a permanent basis and for the next year it was business as usual. Zach and Dan tackled more wargames and a few Euros and Graeme and Dean discussed Euros, Amerithrash and party games. They usually alternated back and forth episodes, but the hosts are listed on the episode descriptions.
Second Format Change: Beginning with episode #51 Graeme and Dean have started to host all episodes of the podcast.
Special Episodes: Coffee Talk These episodes feature a guest and usually focus on a topic or their craft. Designed to be more informative and conversational, we also ask questions more general to gaming or designed for the listener to learn about the guest on a personal level.
About the hosts: Dean "lives" in Ohio, but is usually recording from a hotel room due to his business travels. He enjoys strategy games, but sometimes just needs a good dice chucker. He is the theme guy and can overlook some flaws because of it. Considered an angel by many, he loves to stir the pot and plant seeds of doubt and betrayal in social deduction games. Nah...pretty much every game!
Graeme lives in Toronto and had his own podcast(Four Corners of Board) which he hosted with his wife and friends. Graeme still hosts Talking Across the Game Board, in which Dean joins the discussion. Graeme is the typical mechanics are everything and theme is nothing gamer. Without a soul, he lives in a numbers only world. He enjoys heavy strategy games, but also enjoys dark games like Lobotomy. A demon in disguise. Don't let your guard down if you play against him.
